Hollow

If you break my heart, I will rip you up and apart.
You painted me a picture. You made art.
Like light, you disappear when it's dark,
And our goodbye has left an ugly scar.
 
I may be a lover, but I can fight.
We may be in covers, but that's just tonight.
I could listen to my mother, but that's no fun, right?
We could be with eachother, but it's done and said, all right?
 
I'm hollow.
I'm so hollow.
I'm hollow without you.
 
There's sorrow,
So much sorrow.
There's sorrow without you.
I'm hollow, baby, without you.
 
They took away my liquor.
They said I had a problem.
I got way more than one.
Taking it away ain't bouta solve 'em.
 
I may have problems, but liquor is just one.
Fill the hole it made when the sadness won.
It's the problem of all my problems.
Only I can solve 'em. I can solve 'em.
 
I'm hollow.
I'm so hollow.
I'm hollow without you.
 
There's sorrow,
So much sorrow.
There's sorrow without you.
I'm hollow, liquor, without you.
 
They took away my liquor.
Now my control is gone.
I try not to pick up the razor,
But that demon been won.
 
They took away my razor blades.
Will any of these luxuries stay?
I can't live sane like this, okay?
Please give it all back to me.
 
I need to cut.
I need to bleed.
Fuck these self help books,
Too unfocused to read.
 
First my love, then my liq, now this.
What will you take next? My soul? My spliff?
I'm so hollow. Can't you see?
I'm hollow without these things for me.
 
I'm hollow.
I'm so hollow.
I'm hollow without you.
 
There's sorrow,
So much sorrow.
There's sorrow without you.
I'm hollow, razor, without you.
 
Oh, I'm hollow.
Yes, I'm hollow.
Too much sorrow.
I'm so hollow.
